Augmenting our natural senses
Ubiquitous Sensing: From Ideas to Impact
What could you do if you had 7 senses? 10 senses? More? What would you do with all of that information? How big would your brain need to be? How would you communicate what you feel?
On May 25, 2017, MIT will announce the launch of SENSE.nano—MIT.nano's first Center of Excellence. SENSE.nano will convene technical, business, and visionary leaders from MIT, industry, and society. A full-day symposium will bring together the Ubiquitous Sensing experts and visionaries: who are developing capabilities and solving technical challenges, who can articulate commercial and humanitarian needs, and who envision the societal impact of ubiquitous sensing. From the opening keynote address, through sessions of invited technical talks, and to the closing panel discussion, we will showcase current research and innovations enabling new generations of sensors while highlighting potential impacts of and needs for realizing ubiquitous sensing for man-and-machine and for the environment-and-ecosystem.
